Horrible Rooms

Do not stay here!! The staff is not helpful or friendly. They do not guarantee wi-fi in the rooms. They are right off the interstate so you will hear traffic all night in the room. The room had an awful odor, the paint was peeling off the walls in the bathroom. The tub did not look clean and had stains. Awful experience!!!!

Good enough

Other than the fact that my room didn't have wifi because of it's location inside the hotel, it wasn't a bad choice. It's very well located, and provides the minimum of what you need. Since I didn't spend much time there (because of my theme park schedule), just what I needed was alright.

You don't need a car to get to Universal Studios. That is very convenient if you aren't traveling with kids.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't wait for the shuttle. Walk to the park instead, universal studios is just a 15 min walk away. You'll save a lot of time. Also, check in after you spend the day in the park, then come back to City Walk to have a few drinks without worring about loosing your reservation.

Weekend with friends

Great location. Clean. Had wifi that required a password which we were never given. Room needs a microwave. Got charged for a safe that was not even touched.

Very convenient location for Universal!

Good value for location. Hotel is not particularly special but could not be more convenient to Universal. It would have been nice to have breakfast price included but there are places to eat conveniently located.

Great Location, not what was promised

The room was about what you would expect for a cheap hotel near Universal. Reasonably clean, OK in size and comfort. OK heated pool. They did not have the amenities promised, though. No microwave, beds are double- not queens, and the shuttle to Universal only drops off at 10:30 and picks up at 7:30- the busiest times of day to be there. Luckily, it is less than a mile walk, so we could get there before the crowds. Only worth it if you can get it for a screaming deal.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Show up at Universal when the doors open. Most of the rides will only have a 5-10 min wait. Skip the forbidden journey for now and ride everything else until the lines get to be more than 30 min, then settle yourselves in for the long line of the forbidden journey. We walked back to the hotel at 12:00 to nap and play in the pool, then went back at 8:00 when everyone else was leaving for the day.

Ok for the money

7 of us stayed for 2 nights and went to Disney world. The rooms were clean, staff was ok, not great, no breakfast and NO coffee! The pool and bartender were the best part of the stay.
